Asparagus Lasagna: From Sara's Secrets. Made this on 7/16/14. It was so good! It was my first time really using asparagus in another way besides a side dish. Followed the recipe exactly, except used regular lasagna noodles, cooking them for half the time. Also didn't use heavy cream, but instead followed the advice of a reviewer who suggested using...

Marinated the steak overnight w/ all ingredients except the cumin, lime, & chipolte (didn't have it). Added garlic powder & black pepper. Next day cooked the steak, sliced it thinly, then cooked it again for a short time in the juice"

I made this today for dinner with a recipe from Ina Garten for steak. It was very good; the best mashed potatoes I ever made. I used Russet potatoes and used a 1/4 cup cream and 1/2 cup water. However, it was lacking the garlicky flavor that I was looking forward to. I will definitely try it again because I am pleased with the results I got. ...

I made this cake on 7/12/13 for my church leader's birthday. It was delicious and well received. I followed the directions exactly, but halved all ingredients to make a 2 layer cake. I had to refrigerated the cake after frosting with a thin layer to set it because it turned out thin. I took it out and added additional frosting, then put it back"

This was a great recipe and easy to prepare. I halved the recipe since it is only my husband and myself presently, and we still have leftovers. I also read the reviews and because of them, I added some additional seasoning (pepper, salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and smoked paprika. I also used some of the pasta water to have a bit more"

It was very good. I followed the directions as written, but with a few adaptions: I only used beef. I also didn't use the spinach (didn't have any) and used dried Italian seasoning because I didn't have dried basil. I minced some onion and peppers, and added them to the meat mixture. I also added in about 3/4 tsp ground pepper. I would defini"

Made this without the frosting due to not having all the ingredients for it. It was yummy! It was enjoyed by all. The color seemed a little light, so I may use some brown sugar next time for the white."

Aloha Paula! This is the first recipe that I have made of yours. It was really good. I used brown short grain rice because it was all I had.

I made this for Valentine's Day for my husband. It was so delicious! I used fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. I was tempted to use other seasoning, but I resisted. I didn't use a cast iron skillet; used a regular one as it was all I had. But still finished it in the oven as directed in a baking pan. Despite all of that, we savored ea"

This was a wonderful recipe. It was simple and easy to do. I didn't want to have to go to the store to buy what I didn't have. So I didn't use the crushed tomatoes (used stewed tomatoes instead); didn't have the fresh herbs (used dried Italian seasoning which had thyme and rosemary in it); I had no carrots or celery, so I didn't use it and I onl"
